A Low-Carbon Crypto Mining Token

The blockchain and mining firm Bitriver announced the organization is launching the public sale for its new tokens called “bitriver token (BTR)†on April 19, 2021. Each token represents a single watt-hour (Wh) of Bitriver’s low-carbon cryptocurrency mining power and the tokens will have utility as well.

According to the company’s announcement, the tokens will be able to be used to pay for Bitriver’s colocation services and “will be bought back by Bitriver at original listing price after a five-year period.†Right now BTR is available to pre-sale investors with a minimum order quantity of 100,000 BTR tokens per order.

As far as the public launch is concerned next Monday, the BTR tokens will be sold on Bithumb Global and the price per BTR will start at $0.3504 per unit. The announcement says BTR will be paired with BTC, USDT, and USDC. A supply of 100 million BTR has been issued in order to represent the 100 MW of power.

“From day one, we have always sought to use only renewable and surplus energy for all our operations. It is encouraging to see the increasing interest worldwide in low-carbon cryptocurrency mining,†Igor Runets, the founder and CEO of Bitriver said. “By launching the BTR token, we seek to accelerate our efforts to make cryptocurrency mining greener while offering investors around the world an easier-than-ever way to become part of environment-friendly cryptocurrency mining today.â€

Bitriver Hopes to Capture 1,000 Megawatts of Power by 2022

BTR token holders will be incentivized by being able to “get additional tokens every month†and use BTR to pay up to 10% of the monthly collocation service bills. Bitriver says it will accept BTR based on the average market price on the exchange for the last settlement month.

“Obtain free of charge repair service of mining equipment that is located in the Bitriver’s mining datacenter each particular month,†the company says. “If the holder pays 10% of this monthly bill by tokens,†Bitriver’s announcement adds.
